Mirrors and stitches


WIP: shisha sampler, originally uploaded by Erratic Needle.

Shisha embroidery is one thing I have never tried, but looking at this beautiful sampler I think I may just have to!

Isn't it lovely? I really like the combination of all the different stitches and the colours. So fresh!

  2. So beautiful! I also didn't know there were so many varieties in the way the mirror pieces could be stitched down, the possibilities are endless!

    This piece is gorgeous, I love the colors and textures!
